KARAOKE BATTLE USA
Hosted by Joey Fatone
Judges: Joe Levy, Carnie Wilson, Brian Scott
Karaoke Battle USA is a new singing competition show on ABC banished to Fridays in the summer and it's not hard to see why. Everything about this show was over the top. With the dramatic introduction, pauses, etc - it's easy to forget that this for a KARAOKE competition. They want to be like American Idol (the theme and introduction graphics seemed like a carbon copy) but it's hard to take it seriously. Host Joey Fatone is about what you would expect him to be while the judges were over the top in theatrics even though Carnie Wilson had her moments. Previous karaoke winner Brian Scott couldn't stop mentioning his championship and experience while Joe Levy acted as if this was the most important competition in the world.
